Coming up shortly I’ll be attending a masquerade fundraiser ball where I get to dress up, have a nice kid-free dinner, adult conversation, and hopefully lots of wine! This is an event I’ve been attending annually for the past few years, and although I know it’s coming every year, I usually find myself running around last minute for a dress and fun new mask. This year I decided to think ahead and give myself some time to make my own. Mask not dress- I’m not that talented! Check out my DIY Masquerade Mask Tutorial below. If you’re the crafty type, you may already have many of the materials on hand. If not, you can track most of the items down at Walmart, Joanne Fabrics, and Michaels.

Step by Step DIY Masquerade Mask Tutorial:
- Paint the front and back of the mask with black acrylic paint.
- Apply lace with Mod Podge by painting glue on mask then laying lace over the mask. Next, apply another layer of glue over the lace. Place in front of a fan for quick dry.
- Cut excess lace off.
- Using your sequin trim, use hot glue to outline the eyeholes on your mask.
- Construct flower accent using tulle, lace, beads, sequins, ribbon, and flower by gluing strands to one of the felt squares. I attached 10 strands ranging from 6”-12”. Once you’ve finished gluing the strands of ribbon, lace, and sequins, glue another felt square over top to make the collection look a little cleaner.
- Next, construct the feather accent in a similar fashion by using a large 9”-12” feather and then arranging an additional 10-12 smaller feathers around the main one. I used hot glue and attached the feathers to another square piece of felt. Again, once you’ve finished gluing all the feathers on to your felt, glue the last felt square over top.
- For the final touch, glue the feather and flower accents to one side of your mask and then glue the flower accent over the feathers and strands of sequins and lace.
Optional: I glued a piece of black felt to the inside of my mask for a more comfortable fit.
